Mass Arrests in Aden

SANAA, Yemen -- Yemeni troops and police have arrested at least 300 people in Aden since it was captured by northern forces at the end of a two-month civil war, according to reports reaching foreigners in the capital Sanaa.

Some were taken to Aden's Fatah camp, from which about 300 jailed opponents of the defeated southern leadership escaped when the secessionist cause collapsed Thursday, according to reports.
